OH MY GOODNESS! This challenge was a blast. I almost didn't do it because I didn't think I could. But heck...I love to doodle. I used to doodle in school all the time. So I thought...what the check, it doesn't hurt to try. I had soooo much fun creating this card. Taking me way back to my school days. Good times, good times...
I started out with a Label 1 Nestabilities cut out and added the outline in black marker. Next I stamped several flowers from Lawn Fawn's Petite Florals on my sheet. Filling it out was a bit intimidating at first....but at the end I had a hard time stopping. You can always just add a little more.
I thought the sentiment would go great with it. It's such a funky background.

NO GIRL!!! YOU ROCKED IT!!!! Fabulous and fun job!!! I remember the days of all the doodling too. Who would have thought we would be doing a challenge with it as adults?! I love how you mounted yours on a blue background with a matching button. What a sharp piece of work!! :>)

You certainly did rock this, Beate! This just jumps off the page - can't you just see a whole page of 12x12 paper in that design. Sad truth is I don't think I was ever much of a doodler, I still find it hard to put pen to paper. I do remember knitting in physics classes when I was bored, though!

This is awesome, Beate!! It brought me back to my school days also, remembering how I used to love drawing alll over my notebook when I was supposed to be paying attention in class :)
I just may have to try this today, I am a little intimidated too, but it looks like fun.
